    I reported this (or similar looking problem) before. I'm starting another thread because this happened again in the latest 2.7.9

    When I hit Repost to Twitter, Twitter says:

    Array ( [pgID] => [isPosted] => 0 [pDate] => 2013-04-16 19:36:09 [Error] => {"errors":[{"code":190,"message":"Status creation failed: The text of your tweet is too long."}]} MSG:Patrick from popehat.com: ";It would behoove All Of Us to take what [is said] about suspects and motives ... http://bit.ly/17Elsyj )

    My full post is here.

    And my excerpt text is [STRING[Patrick from popehat.com: "It would behoove All Of Us to take what [is said] about suspects and motives with a grain of salt."]]

    This won't be easy for us to fix. From Twitter's point of view this Tweet has two links. Each link takes 22 characters. Our plugin correctly counts the bit.ly link that came from %SURL%, but popehat.com is coming from your text.

    I see what you mean. Thanks!

    For future readers...

    I'll just have to be more careful not to write things -- in this case it was an "example.com" domain name -- which Twitter is going to auto-promote into an embedded "http://t.co" URL sucking up extra characters.
